My wife Leslie and I have raised our children in Chandler, Arizona.  Our son Trace graduated from Northern Arizona University in microbiology and is in the medical field.  Trenton is a graduate of the Air Force Academy (‘07) and is a C-17 and unmanned aircraft called the Global Hawk pilot stationed in Sicily on a NATO base.  Hatton is a graduate of the Air Force Academy (‘11) and is a C-17 pilot and will be going to McChord AFB in Seattle, WA. Leslie and I have great pleasure in watching our sons grow in their experiences and socializing with family and friends.
